  • Bougainville - I come from Kunua just a few kilometres from Torokina on the West Coast of Bougainville. Since 1960s our people have experienced alot of violent earthquake shakings and volcanic eruptions. I remember a huge earthquake and a tsunami that destroyed many lives and properties back in 1972 when I was only 4 years old. One cannot believe such stories until he/she lives in this part of the world.
  • Craig, CO - Rumbling subsurface underneath where I was sitting on the couch. Any seismic recordings for this area? The locals say it's right on a fault line.
